Finals day at Stonehaven Tennis Club

Saturday saw the annual STC club championship finals day with over 30 participants competing in 15 finals, and there were many great, and often close, matches played.

Special mention should be given to the Burns family who dominated the ladies’ events with 14-year-old Annabel winning the ladies’ singles final along with both the U18 singles and doubles titles and the U14 girls singles.

Meanwhile, her Mum Irene took the ladies’ doubles with partner Aoife Aitken and then the mixed doubles title with Bruce McIver. Bruce also beat Daniel Colvin in a tight match to win the men’s singles final.

Other singles winners were Patrick Young (18&U), Louis Duthie Gray (14&U) and Lewis Finlay (12&U) while Rosie Sterk won the 12&U girls title.

Despite varied weather there was an impressive turn out of spectators and an enjoyable day was had by all. Well done to all the players that have played many matches to get to finals day.
